Definately a cheap and easy mod.

Here are some pics. Overall this was a preetty easy mod and cheap! the hoses come from amazon are 30 bucks or so shipped! no brainer compared to some of the kits that cost a lot.

old hose- came off the firewall surprisingly easy. just a few twists and popped right off.


firewall connections


fed by the abs perch


back to the water pump/tstat housing


overall shot



When you say "burped" what do you mean? Like how would I burp the system?

when you drain the system and put the coolant back in there will be air bubbles in the system. You have to literally...burp the bubbles out of the system.

Its easy to do. once you have the coolant back in, start the car and unscrew the filler cap on the radiator to allow the air to escape.

I did mine as well.
The funny thing is the 5/8 nipple on the firewall goes to the 3/4 nipple on the water pump.
And the 3/4 nipple on the firewall goes to the 5/8 on the water pump.

I wonder why GM did that
Folks need to be sure to get it the rite way.Use the correct diameter hose at the firewall and spread the 5/8 hose over the 3/4 nipple at the water pump.Less chance damaging the heater core that way.

I wonder how many people have going to the same size nipple both ways and if it would make a difference?The water control valve could be impacted with the flow of water going the wrong direction?

I can't really see in the pics well. Where are you guys relocating them too? It looks like you're relocating them by the exhaust manifolds which would be a very bad idea. Can someone chime in or show some better pics?

The hoses are running inside the ABS perch.
They are protected by the heat shield,Run split conduit over the hoses to protect from chaffing.
It's tight,but fit perfectly.

Nope...no where near the exhaust. There are some openings in the bracket holing the ABS module. You use that to go through.

Nicely done. I wish I had gone this route instead of AFX hose kit. Although a nice OE look, the hose kit is in the way as far as accessing spark plugs and header bolts.

The plastic checkvalve looking things in the original hoses are just connectors.
